Subject Re: [Math]Higher precision for Significance using Math Component
Date Tue, 02 Jul 2013 17:57:01 GMT
How does significance make any sense at all at these levels?  How can
higher precision do you any good at all?  Can't you just use the underlying
z-score (or whatever) directly instead of precision?
